Hey, go buy a record...

by Chris Randall

Since Diamond Dave is planning to have my Creative Commons license revoked (!?!) I better release everything now! In that light, my latest as Micronaut is now available at shopPOSI. Pick up a copy, and you'll be enabling my snobby gear habit. Digital only release, $6.00 a throw.

Note that if you want an audio demonstration of Audio Damage products, there's no better way than to pick this album up. Other than the Eclipse and the usual Waves limiting products, every effect on this album came out of our shop.

I like eclipse especially. It has a nice kinda basic channel flavor.

What I couldn't do myself (not for the 10 or 20 CDs I had sold on, was to run my own web store, set up a credit card ordering system, and print and label the CD and handle shipping in a highly efficent way. Sure,'s old DAM CD system wasn't all that... but for people who aren't making a living on music who want to make it easy for someone to buy a CD, it was very useful.

But as for digital downloads, there are stores, such as, that offer full CD quality uncompressed wave file downloads (they also offer 320kbs and 190kbs for slightly less, respectively). If most online music stores would consider full CD quality files (with no DRM), I would probably purchase a lot more music online.

the tradeoff for quality vs. convenience for an MP3 verse just about any other medium is undeniable. I was vehemently opposed to owning an ipod for the first couple years they were out. But once I bought one, I hardly ever buy a CD anymore. Of course my lifestyle has changed dramatically since then (I spend a lot more time on a bike or jogging somewhere, and an ipod beats a discman anyday for that).

I can still tell the difference in MP3 vs. CD quality, but its not like cassettes vs. CD's or anything

Dave, I have to tell you - I just had a fit of laughter over your recent username change ; )

Dave didn't do that himself. It was an inside job. He just woke up one day to find he had a new username.

I didn't do it; I'm fairly certain it was Mr. Beeson, but I haven't asked him about it.

Doesn't matter which cyberbully it was. You are risking losing your Creative Commons License for this blatant disgracing of the entire nation of Belize

Lovely...wonder if enough of the SMG peeps are in on the joke...or if they think I'm some secret huge early Van Halen fan haha

"But you can't play a record in your car."

And here I am thinking of building a trailer of speakers and a turntable for my bicycle...

personally, I like apple lossless a lot. My ipod plays it, so it's not incomvenient if I don't insist on having my entire cd collection with me all the time. I also have no trouble ripping all my cd's onto a harddisk in lossless. Yes, I know it's bigger than mp3's. If itunes would sell lossless files instread of mp3's I might actually buy music from them. Anyway, maybe I'll get the album and see how it sounds.
